Tate v. Capital Bank
OPINION and ORDER Granting Plaintiff's 2 Application to Proceed Without Prepaying Fees or Costs. Signed by District Judge Bernard A. Friedman. (TMcg)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
Criminal Case No. 17-CV-12221
HON. BERNARD A. FRIEDMAN
OPINION AND ORDER GRANTING PLAINTIFF’S
APPLICATION TO PROCEED IN FORMA PAUPERIS
This matter is before the Court on plaintiff Tate’s application to proceed in forma
pauperis [docket entry 2]. Under 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(1), the Court may waive a person’s filing
fees if he shows that he is “unable to pay such fees.” Having reviewed the complaint and plaintiff’s
affidavit, the Court finds plaintiff unable to pay the required filing fee.
IT IS ORDERED that Tate’s application to proceed in forma pauperis is granted.
